LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 7, 2009) - Muscle Flex Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MFLI) announced today that it has formally submitted its registration with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) for The BUDDY Tablet Caddy™ ( and has completed registration for its exercise machine brand Muscle Flex® and Extreme Machine® for wares which include exercise machines, manual leg exercisers and manually-operated exercise equipment.

"Trademarks and patents are an integral and critical corporate strategy for all products and services that are marketed by Muscle Flex Inc. Branding and consumer product awareness are extremely valuable assets that must be secured. Intellectual property assets in the 'As Seen on TV' industry can accelerate a product's sales initiatives as it grows by becoming the defacto brand name in a particular space. It can be a determining factor in successfully establishing additional selling channels such as traditional retail opportunities in order to fully monetize a direct response TV campaign," commented Danny Alex, CEO of Muscle Flex Inc.

Muscle Flex management has many years of intellectual property experience and has recently successfully defended its "In the Raw®" Canadian trademark against the World Wrestling Entertainment's "Raw" trademark in Canada, ending a multi-year dispute. This experience ensures the critical steps of protecting and developing brand value, defending brand value as well as litigating infringement are in place right from the product's inception. The value generated from large "As Seen on TV" marketing campaigns for any particular product can be quickly translated into traditional retail opportunities as well as other cross-pollination sales generators. Securing and protecting brand names is Muscle Flex's first step in rolling out any product via direct response.
